The turbo you seek lies to the left of your 'a' key.

Honestly, the mods should institute an auto-ban. If someone tries to submit a post with more than 10 caps in a row -> warning, twice ->Ban.

yes, the ebay kits are good. Just make sure and get one where the turbo does not hit the block.

The answer to your question depends entirely on what your definition of 'daily use' is. There's no shortcut to figuring this out, apart from just buying an off-the-shelf kit and hoping that whatever you've been sold will suit you.

What are your goals?

What are your mechanical/fabrication skills?

What is your budget?

etc.

etc.

We're not the Magic 8 Ball of turbo questions...we need something to go on.

well my mechanical skills are very good but not with turbo, never worked on one. I have about $1,000.00 for the project and Im asking because I heard that for using the car every day the T03 or T04 is not good. I wanted something simple to add some horse power and fool around but I use the car every day to go to work and do the every day things, I own a 2005 miata that I use mostly weekends and days off so this is the car we use for everything else.

Save up atleast 1,000 more dollars.

Buy this, BEGi Shanghai-S Turbo System 1999-2004 BEGi and buy MegaSquirt or equally as usuable and capable EngineManagement.

Why would you drive your 1.6 every day and not your 2005. To top that you want to turbo your daily driver when you've got a weekend toy? Cool, bro, very cool.

Save yourself at least $1,000,000 more dollars.
